Car cut off one day while idling at the gas station. Wouldnt turn over got it towed homke. New starter, plugs & 1 coil pack (didnt know there were 2). Still wont turn over. It cranks but will just kill the battery trying to make it turn over. Tried to jump it still wouldnt turn over. What it could be is it the timing or that In eed to replace the 2nd coil pack.

A 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Calais V4 2.3 engine just put new plugs in it wants to start just wont turn over. Could it be the ignition control module.

I posted how you can check for code's.If you go to auto zone they rent fuel pressure gauge's rent one all you have to do is use the correct adapter screw it on the thread valve that is on the fuel supply line then crank the car for like 5 seconds and see what the pressure is it should hold steady.Let me know what the pressure is.Do you have spark to both coil's? If you do then i wouldn't suspect a bad ignition module.
